My ongoing inquiry has been around the practice of painting as mark-making. My method involves working with intuitive gestural marks ~ including brushed lines, poured lines, splatters and flicks ~ capturing energy and movement, yet creating structure, line, depth and rhythm. My process is to allow my painting to grow organically, with each mark being made as a response to the previous one.
My current / new works reference elements of land and sea, coastal estuaries and tidal flow; the coastline, constantly in flux, a changing environment due to tidal cycles and weather patterns.
